 What short memories everyone seems to have!  Remember Google denying pre version 6 iOS access to turn-by-turn navigation, Street View and playing hard-ball by insisting on greater access to user details? Who was kow-towing to whom?
Translation: the mortal threat to Redmond posed by Apple's recent iWork bundling moves both on the Web / Cloud and on tablets has not gone unnoticed, and has to be countered as a matter of grave urgency. Period.
First rule of business and politics: "No permanent friends, no permanent enemies". Though American WW2 hero General Patton would likely have described Samsung as "The Enema" :-)
"Now with iOS 7, I'm getting 3-4 hours of battery life. Awful." Anyone spot the catch in the rye?

Don't be silly. The only foreign technology Apple has bought since 1988 are Anobit (Israel), eMagic and Astarte (Gernamy), SchemaSoft, Poly9 and Locationary (Canada), Polar Rose (Sweden), and Redmatica (Italy).   No Korean companies there, buddy.
